    I like that vest. A lot. I have it, but have only worn it once or twice. I'm never quite sure what to pair it with without looking like I'm trying too hard to pull off a wearing a vest. Your look works. Have you ever paired it under a white or light blue OCBD? (I don't wear too many patterned button ups and generally default to an OCBD, t-shirt, or sweater on weekends).
    Yep, I wear this vest with basically any button-down shirt I have, whether patterned or solid. Blue OCBD works nicely with the olive color. I could see wearing this vest over a crewneck sweater/sweatshirt and button-down shirt as well, though I don't recall if I've worn that specific combo.

    Here is me today, your basic business casual jacket/denim mullet:



    BB shirt, Robert Talbott knit wool tie, Bonobos jacket, JCF jeans, LE belt, Timex watch, plus PRL snuff suede wingtips (not shown).

      By the way, is that a Ludlow?
      The jacket is Hugo Boss. My wife's family gets 25% off at Dillard's and they always tell us when the bigger sales are. I think I got this for $170 or something. I just got a wool/linen summer jacket for like $90.

        That's a nice-looking tie.

        How is the quality? My brother has a Hugo Boss suit that looks great on him, and since he's got pretty much the exact same body I do, I've thought about buying one myself. But I'm not sure if they're worth Suit Supply/Ludlow prices.

          Which Bonobos blazer is that? Jetsetter? Unstructured?

            Neither. I've had it a couple years - my gmail history tells me it's the "Fairfax" jacket.

              They are not worth it full priced but anything under $200 is worth looking into at least for a sport coat. I've worn this one about once a week for 2 years and it has held up fine. My only complaints are the long sleeves even on regular jackets and the number of models they offer. I don't know if the fits change but if I am looking at something on say eBay, I try to stick with the model labels I know for fit purposes.

              LBD, I really like the fit today. It had changed my mind on khaki colored sport coats and jeans with sport coats.

                Blast. Thanks. It looks like exactly what I'm looking for, only in navy.
